Five Stages. Denial. Anger. Bargaining. Depression. Acceptance.
Gifts to Humanity
A strange thing happened when we went to the cemetery. My loved one wasn’t even buried there, but I found comfort.
I don’t go to cemeteries to visit any lost loved ones, so I was surprised at the comfort that poured over me. Continue reading “Gifts to Humanity”

We Said Goodbye
We said our final goodbyes to Max last night, January 8, 2020 around 6pm. I have no energy in me to write much else at the moment. I wrote the following while he was sick but still with us. Thank you for honoring our sweet boy by reading it. I may be scarce for a little while.
Through the Eyes of . . .
Do you see through your own eyes?
My head is spinning from the whirlwind that has been my life since the 4th of July. We still have about a dozen boxes to unpack in our new home, plus need to hang pictures and decorate. There will be more updating to the house as well, but at least the major fixes are done for a few years.
In the mean time, I find myself experiencing the stages of grief over losing my mother-in-law three weeks ago.

Send Down the Rope
I don’t even know where to begin to write this difficult post. I hope you’ll follow along anyway, because this is important … to me.
Sometimes You Just Gotta Cry
Life has become turmoil lately, which is the reason why comments are closed for now.
I thought I’d post an update from my last more substantive post.

Real Life Editing
It’s that time of year already.
Shopping, cold, snow, decorations, and lights. I like to take time out from it all and relax with the Christmas movies. Personally, I prefer the old standbys … It’s a Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street. I also enjoy Polar Express.
My husband’s favorite, however, is this movie. Can you tell which one it is?
Grow Old With You
When couples get married, they presume it’s for life, and that they will grow old together. If you pay attention to statistics, fifty percent of them won’t make it that far.
Most couples don’t realize when they’re young, what growing old together really means, because aging is not for sissies.
I know of a couple who have been married for over sixty years. They show everyone the true meaning of growing old together, being the strength for one another in every moment of every day. Their love for one another never ceases.
